[ERROR] No.46152912 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

Alright /tg/ I got a question. If Lucius is as eternal as he is and takes over the body of who ever controls him what would happen if he dies an accidental death say a drop pod lands on him what then?

>> No.46152926

>"Hey guys, we crushed Lucius the Eternal!"
>"Thank the Emperor, I'm glad he's dead-"

>> No.46152931

The person piloting the drop pod is possessed.

Now lets say he's walking somewhere and a random boulder falls on him without anyone doing anything to it. He dies for good. So long as there is no one close enough for him to possess.

>> No.46152940


Whoever launched the pods maybe? Lucius spawns on the battle barge bridge.

Duh, he takes over the drop pod.

>takes over the boulder.
Boulder is not alive.

Thus cannot be killed.

Lucius is now forever a rock, or the dust that is left from the rock after the planet is blown up.

Woo, and shit.

>> No.46152999


Lucius gets sent back to the Warp and Slaanesh has to send him back out. Didn't something like this happen before? Lucius "died" for real and Slaanesh just ressed him?

>> No.46153002

The guy who helped manufacture the ship gets turned.

>> No.46153011


But he felt no pride in killing Lucius. Or even in manufacturing the ship. For he knew it was of shoddy construction and would someday crash or worse.

>> No.46153017

But the killer must feel satisfaction at killing him which Drop Pods and boulders can't do. Presumably a Necron won't be possessed by Lucius after killing him due to technically not feeling emotions. Death by natural disaster or Lucius's killer getting killed before transforming would presumably also put that bastard down for good.

>> No.46153025

Slaanesh reincarnates him. IIRC the only way Lucius can be genuinely killed is if he's slain by someone who is "pure of heart", and good luck finding anybody who fits that description in this setting.

Slannesh would have to go through millions of people to do that. There are the tech-priests who actually built the ship piece by piece, the servitors and slaves who put it together, and the actual designer has probably been dead for over ten millennia.





>> No.46153758

They should not know that they killed him, in fact they should not know that they killed anybody.

A valid way of doing it would be a space combat on an orbit of desolate planet and someone misses a shot and the stray hits Lucius hiding on the surface. The killer can't feel excited because he doesn't know he hit anything and would only be dissapointed because he missed.

>> No.46153964

This happened already.

If Lucius does not automatically possess the person who killed him, Slaanesh resurrects him anyway. Same with Kharn the Betrayer, although he just gets rezzed with no possession antics.

>> No.46154046

On that note. If the whole gimmick revolves around pride, If Kharn fucked Lucius up would he turn? Considering he'd probably be to angry to be proud?

>Sister of battle kills Lucius
>Rest of her sisters, and some ordo malleus inquisitors chain her up in a purified chamber deep beneath a heavily guarded ecclesiarchy world
Seems simple, just trap his soul inside a vessel that can adequately fight his soul until it can be cut off from Slaaneshi influence/the warp. Of course, you'd them have to deal with the daemon army coming at you to save a chaos god's favorite, but you know, burn that bridge when you get there.

>> No.46154064

Kharn is the chosen warrior of Kharn, likely immune to Slaanesh magicks just as Kharn is immune to psyker powers directed at him.


You don't fight Lucius' soul. You just turn into him, power armor and all.

>> No.46154066

Exactly, he's not gimped to that specific situation outlined, even if he's killed by say, a necron warrior, slaanesh won't just go 'oh well' and toss him away, he can be revived just like any chaos champ, but the stipulation in actuality seems to make it harder for him to get true-deathed.

>> No.46154082

There's actually a story outlining that scenario for Kharn. Him and a bunch of berserkers go into some slaaneshi fort, and all of his warriors slowly succumb while he gets pissy about how weak they are compared to him.

And as for 'you don't fight his soul', his soul obviously exists within you, in order for the transformation to take place. Every transformation doesn't just make a new Lucius.

>> No.46154091

Lucius' soul doesn't exist in you. You exist in him, and become another screaming face in his armor.

And yeah, Kharn's a pretty cool guy.

>> No.46154093

>not sure about that some tau Ethereals is pure dick

>> No.46154159

Slaanesh resurrects him. He has 140+ infamy by BC guidelines, his Armor-based resurrection is not the only defence he has. Alternatively, he dodges the droppod. The imperial assassins can, and he is probably as good.

Venerable m-machine spirit?

>> No.46154249

Depending on Slanesshs mood he will get revived. He got killed multiple times with beings and people who felt no joy in killing him, the first one was a Ravenguard from Istvaan.

He feels really insulted when it happens.

The ruinous powers aren't really big on following rules. Slaanesh will re-spawn him as long as Slaanesh finds him entertaining. Maybe keep a tally of "how many respawns this time beforree someone gets him that can't turn into him". And one day the fickle god won't favour him any more, and his immortality will fail, or he turns into a chaos spawn, or...

>> No.46156767

I hate that claim. The Tau only think that they killed Slaanesh due to ignorance, a chaos warband they were fighting shouted out cries of "For Slaanesh!" and they misinterpreted that as being the name of the Chaos Lord that they killed instead of a God. An easy mistake to make when they know nothing of chaos.

It was only one guy who thought he killed Slaanesh and it was the commander.

Ignorance of Slaanesh and the Chaos Gods is widespread ib 40K out of a select few and the Eldar. Most humans don't know whon Slaanesh is. The fluff states that knowledge of Slaanesh existence will cause entire planets to fall to Chaos. Necrons and Orks wouldn't care to know who he is.

Maybe they'll stop stabbing at the Imperium when they realize just how fucked they are without the Imperium. The only reason anything is alive, except for necrons and whoever wins between the orks and tyranids, is the Imperium. It's the only fighting for large enough to even stand a chance and the Tau are just dicking about and taking important resources away from them. I've got a Tau-fag that shows up and he is acting like a fucking five year old from that new campaign book saying that because the Tau won this one big battle that means they can take of the galaxy and break Terra if it wasn't for "the greater good". I want to punch him in the face sometimes. He acts so fucking smug about it every time I fight him, especially if I got my guard. Fucker can't get it through his head that the universe is a mean place and they only thing keeping his little xenos alive is the slowly dying giant that they feel inclined to stab every now and then.

It's a somewhat obscure story, that goes on about a 'knight in pure grey armor' traveling and defeating all of the challenges in the tower of Slaanesh in the warp. He eventually gets to slaanesh herself, which appears before him as a weak, androgynous child, and as he raises his blade to strike, he is suddenly struck by an aura of purity eminating from the child, and instead of bringing his blade down on it, bows and agrees to serve it.

>> No.46164968

Lucius the Eternal Loser has the most senseless and contrived backstory of any 40k "champion" EVER. Prove me wrong.

Iirc, he was "blessed" with immortality by Slaanesh as a reward for LOSING an arena fight and only gets to use his leet rez powers by LOSING more fights. His mad duellist skillz couldn't keep him alive, in the arena and keeping him alive on the battlefield just lets him keep LOSING. Theory: His patron wasn't really Slaanesh.

>It's a somewhat obscure story
Hardly that obscure, it's in the current Chaos Daemons codex that's been out for 3 years and caused quite a stir when it first hit.

Statuesque and divinely glamorous, the deity visited him in the form of a young man possessed of an androgynous beauty – clean climbed and fresh with the vigour of youth.

To his horror, he found that he could not, for the god-prince was disarming in his innocence and utterly beguiling in his manner.

>Even the purest flame can be extinguished by the tide. In that single moment of doubt the wanderer was lost. He knelt, bowing his head at last, and a single touch of the being’s glowing sceptre on each shoulder sealed his fate for eternity.

It's because dying gets Lucy really hard, and Slaanesh appreciates that.

So why haven't Lucius, Kharn and Typhus become daemon princes yet? You would think they have done enough to earn it many times over.

Once you go full daemon, you can't really just hang out in realspace anymore. All three of them have reasons to want to stay in realspace to keep doing what they've been doing. Lucius wants to duel mortals, Kharn wants to claim more skulls, and Typhus wants to spread diseases.

>> No.46167347

It's a different thing, it's not just godhood, when they ascend they're forced to play the great game in the warp and eternally fight for their gods there, their stints in realspace are small in comparison. Though some have been known to sort of break away and attempt to secure their singular godhood, like one story about a daemon who went to realspace and made a religion around himself.

In the end, some high up chaos servants see daemonhood as a weakness or abandomnent of duty, as they can no longer fully dedicate themselves to their duties in realspace/fucking with the imperium. Hence some getting very powerful, but not wanting to ascend, like Abaddon, who had fought against even daemon primarchs. He could ascend any time, he just doesn't want to become a slave of the chaos gods.

Typhus is a cuck who craves Daemonhood but will never achieve it.

Lucius and Kharn are already more powerful than Daemon Princes. They're both immortal, they both get resurrected on death, and they can go wherever they want because they are not bound to the warp like daemons. Hell Kharn's stronger than most Daemon Princes considering he IIRC BTFO a Bloodthrister and is the avatar of Khorne.
